Toys for Tots Collection Ends Today
The Wright Way Club is collecting new unwrapped toys to contribute to the annual Marine Corps Toys for Tots drive. Please drop off new unwrapped toys inside the Daniel Wright front office vestibule before Friday, Dec. 11. The unemployment rate in the U.S.A. rose to 14% this year. Giving a little, can help a lot. Your donation will have an impact.
Sponsor a Family Ends Today
Each year the Daniel Wright Student Council sponsors a family and purchases gifts to make their holidays more enjoyable. Please review what the Student Council still needs. Drop items off at the front office vestibule before Friday, Dec. 11. With your support, we are able to fulfill the family's wish list.
We Need Names for Graduation
As part of our preparation for the eighth-grade graduation/promotion ceremony, please fill out the following Diploma Name Google Form.
As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, we have begun to look ahead and prepare for a graduation celebration for our eighth-grade students. The last day of school for the current eighth-grade class is set for Friday, May 28, 2021. The graduation ceremony has been scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at Stevenson High School. The format for the ceremony is yet to be determined as it will be dependent on guidance from the Illinois Department of Health.

Leave Your Legacy in D103
The D103 Learning Fund Foundation invites your family to leave a legacy at D103 with the launch of the Legacy Brick Fundraiser. With the completion of the Daniel Wright construction project, the Foundation invites families to donate $100 to inscript their name on a brick pathway outside the remodeled school.
This LFF Legacy Brick Fundraiser video, narrated by Daniel Wright Principal Michelle Blackley and featuring the new school mascot, outlines the project. This is a great opportunity to bring our community together, so please consider a donation. The Learning Fund and all of our schools appreciate your generous support.
